11/25/2010 Rocket Ship Ska Trip


11/25 in a nutshell...
Hour 1: Flat seat-of-the-pants wingin' it, including a couple of surprise discoveries in toaster Prince Jazzbo chatting 'pon a great old Studio 1 early-rocksteady-just-emerging-from-ska riddim I wasn't previously aware of, and Mungo's Hi-Fi with Belly Ska Dub featuring a certain MC Ishu. Also busting it on-the-fly was Sherwood B. Funn, who stopped, goed, mamboed, forgot about Shiina Ringo's birthday (so we're mentioning it here; happy 32!), and generally carried on for an hour, Hour 2 to be specific. The 4@4 was strictly for the birds, including three Doctors and a Black Swan, and Lolli Popp had the week off. Also, Gina Gina takes skiing lessons... whoooosh!
